My younger son and I joined a whole bunch of artists from around the world to share our enthusiasm making images on our idevices with our fingers. We called it Mobile art. Part of the mobile adventure was demonstrating the medium in Times Square….lots of busy fingers, alas only a small display screen. It’s the sky next time.

The artists have grown with the new medium, some have edited books, moved to tag painting, software and exhibitions.

The act of making images using light, pixels using my finger on glass still captures my creative curiosity sustained by the many software advances used in our handheld devices e,g. superimposing moving images, adding sound, AI filters and sophisticated digital image manipulation, all within a little device.


My art practice continues to evolve a decade on (2019).
